One of my favourite places. Stiffkey Stores is brilliant. Run by a lovely young couple who have transformed the local shop into a cafe, on trend rustic barn shop and managed to retain the post office and food shop. Outside there are mini beachhut shelters to enjoy a coffee and cake in. They have a selection of unusual toys, cards,... More

Lovely little shop in Norfolk. Sells a wide range of books and curiosities, as well as having a small village shop and post office in the back. Stiffkey Stores is also a cafe, selling very nice hot chocolates and brownies (among other things), you can sit inside amongst the books on a cold or rainy day, or there is outside... More

All the positive comments in reviews so far seem justified when describing this café, newsagent, post office, shop, ... in fact, a traditional village store. Our coffees were excellent and Eccles cake were very good. But where do people park during the busy season? It must be best by bus!

Lovely store with cafe - provisions, gifts. Loved the decor - v stylish yet old fashioned - felt calm as soon as we walked in. Bought lovely bread and wish we have stopped for coffee and cake.

Stiffkey Stores was recommended to us by a local and we weren't disappointed. Lovely hot chocolate and coffee followed by delicious homemade chocolate brownies. The store is full of wonderful books and cards and you could spend all day choosing! The day of our visit the Christmas decorations were made available. Great choice and very tasteful. Lots of Gisela Graham... More

Friendly, helpful staff provide excellent customer service in this little store that has all that you might need if you are staying in the area. Yes, like all village stores the prices are a little higher than the nearby supermarkets, but the service is much better !

We were staying locally in a self catering cottage. The stores provide basic essentials. It is pleasant to sit outside and relax.

a beautiful little cafe and village store. If you are walking the Norfolk coastline (or on the local Coasthopper bus) get off in stiffkey and take some time out to enjoy a great cup of coffee with home made cake. It's worth the stop.

Thank Martin M
